DURHAM – CureMint, a software startup focusing on the dental industry which recently moved its headquarters to the American Underground in Durham, has closed on $1.25 million in new financing.
Some of the funds will be use to expand the company’s staff of eight by hiring additional engineering and other personnel.
Leading the round is Cary-based Cofounders Capital.
“CureMint was founded with a purpose to help the lives of all we touch. Our core competency is in building delightful technical solutions to make our end users’ jobs easier and more productive,” said Brandon McCarty, CureMint’s CEO and cofounder.
“Now more than ever, it is important we execute on this purpose as our overworked healthcare professionals are trying desperately to get the supplies, they need to do their jobs.”
McCarty and cofounder Christopher Rathgeb moved the firm, which launched in 2017, to Durham from Los Angeles.
“Over the past 4 months, we have talked to all of the stakeholders in Dental Support Organizations that CureMint is serving. Brandon and his team focused on the user experience first to ensure adoption, which is what great companies do,” said Tim McLoughlin, partner at Cofounders Capital, in the announcement. “When everyone in the organization loves using the software, it leads to frictionless onboarding and rapid standardization and ROI for ownership. That combination made it an easy decision to invest.”
The startup says its customer base has grown to more than 120 from 10 over the past year, providing a “single solution” for procurement.
